KALISPELL - A pair of Kalispell residents were running the Boston Marathon on Monday, and we have confirmed that both of them are okay after the Boston explosions.
The mood was tense at Scotty's Bar in Kalispell Monday afternoon as employees waited for word on coworker Jill Clark who was running in the marathon.
We have since confirmed from friends and coworkers that Clark finished the race before the explosions happened.
Maura O'Halloran was very concerned about not being able to contact her friend earlier, but we have learned that Clark was unable to contact anyone because phone service in the area was down.
The other Kalispell resident who is reported as being okay is Dr. Richard Briles. We have contacted his office and hope to hear from the doctor later.
